Donskoye (also Bryusterort or Donskoe) is an air base in Kaliningrad Oblast, Russia, located 1 km east of Donskoye (formerly Gross Dirschkeim). It is a very old airfield probably dating back to World War II, nearly at Russia's most extreme western point. The facility contains 25 aircraft pads, and appears to be in a severe state of decay. Its original length was 2000 m, but only 500 m remains. Its pads are occupied by a number of helicopters.

Units stationed at Donskoe in the early 1990s included 396 OKPLVP (396th Independent Shipborne Anti-submarine Helicopter Regiment) flying 22 Ka-27 helicopters; and 745 OPLVP (745th Independent Anti-submarine Helicopter Regiment) flying 15 Mi-14 helicopters [1] and 5 Ka-25 helicopters.
